Despite simplification for Framework Five, the work involved in preparing and submitting an Information Society Technologies (IST) proposal is still extensive if you consider the large volumes of paperwork necessary for consultation, which is a laborious task for even the most experienced of IT project proposers. At the same time, it is necessary that the IST Programme accomplish its aims in realising the benefits of the information society for Europe both by accelerating its emergence and by ensuring that the needs of individuals and enterprises are met. A ready-made solution for tackling both issues above is available in the form of IDEAL-IST, an EU funded project, set up in 1996, which reduces the barriers faced by organisations wishing to participate in the IST programme. The project will accompany the IST Programme throughout its whole duration and serve as a central mediator between the European Commission, national institutions of countries associated to the programme and potential or successful proposers
